Colorado 2004

This was our annual Colorado vacation.  This time, Johnna and I drove up with Dan Lee and Mia Pham.  We spent four days and three nights in Frisco and one day and night in Aspen.

During the day, we never felt cold, accept at night where it was often bone chilling cold and our ski clothes didn't have to much affect when we walked in town.

On top of the mountains, when we were skiing, it was usually around 2 to 18 degrees Fahrenheit and towards 4pm, when the slopes close, it would drop under 0 degrees on top of the moutain. When we were skiing, we didn't feel the cold until the end of the day, which I believe was due to physical exertion.
